Campground facilities are basic and include toilets and non-potable water. There are no fireplaces, so you will need to bring your own fuel stove or gas BBQ. Fires are not allowed.Basic supplies are available at Bimbi Park caravan park approximately 6km from the campground.Advance bookings and payment are required year-round.Beach access is only a short walk from the campground.
